This story is over

Barton St Peter’s Church of England Primary School completed a £400,000 development that has seen two additional classrooms created.

The first phase of the renovation includes a new main entrance and the reception office has been relocated.

Work was then carried out to build the new classrooms and additional toilet facilities.

The existing building was redesigned to create two new group rooms, a library area and a relocation of the existing staff room.

The fencing was also realigned to give classrooms direct access outside.

Councillor David Rose, cabinet member for children, learning and families at North Lincolnshire Council, said: “We are continuing to invest in schools across North Lincolnshire to ensure they meet the increasing demand for school places and offer modern learning environments that meet pupils’ needs, allowing children to meet their full potential.

“Providing better outcomes for all pupils is a top priority for the council. Staff and pupils at Barton St Peter’s C of E primary school are already benefitting from the extra space and improved facilities.”

Martin Vickers MP and ward members Councillor Paul Vickers, Councillor Keith Vickers and Councillor Johnathan Evison officially opened the new-look school on Friday, January 26.

The refurbishment work was carried out by Topcon Construction and Steve Ball Joinery.
